THE 8-BIT WARS will take a detailed look at the gaming explosion of the 1980s, focussing on all those
wonderful games we played on so many different platforms, exploring the different hardware formats, the games,
developers, magazines, musicians and publishers with A WHOLE NEW SET OF INTERVIEWS!
It will be an exploration. A voyage of retro discovery. I hope you will join me on my quest.

and friends... (in a fluid interview, who knows what we will find?).
The aim of the films is to celebrate each machine’s unique individuality, and analyse the fascinating phenomenon
that made users almost tribal about their favourite machine!
The films will be between 2hrs and 2hr 30m in length, possibly divided into episodes NOW EXTENDED!!!
We hit the stretch goal, and the film will be extended, again in the "series"
format, to between 6 and 8 hrs with 55m-60m “episodes” like an old-school
TV series. Whoop!
